Vancouver, British Columbia Section

The Vancouver Section of the PNWSCT meets monthly to learn about changing technologies and to serve our members and the public at large, in the promotion of science… and hopefully to have some fun.

Highlights:

Childrens hospital – JR Memorial golf tournament

We had a great tournament this year organized by Shealyn Gabel of Quadra Chemicals. Thank-you Shealyn and her helpers!

This golf tournament held in honor of John Riddel is a tradition carried on from the former BCPMA and is held with the PAC – Packaging group.,

In 2017 we were, once again, able to raise $2,300 in funds for the Childrens hospital – helping sick children in BC.

It was a honour to hand a check to these people doing amazing work for our sick children in BC.

We look forward to another great time next  June 2018
